Congo virus

Fida Zaman

Congo, a viral disease that spread through tick bite, is increasing in the world and the deaths are occurring on daily basis. The common symptoms of it are observed as fever, headache, joint, nausea, stomach pain, loose motions. The disease is reportedly very common in Africa, Asia, East Europe and Middle East. The CCHF virus cause severe viral hemorrhagic fever outbreaks, with a case fatality of 10% to 40%.
The virus continues to open a serious health feature. It is also spreading alarmingly in Pakistan where about 59 Congo virus cases have been reported since 2010. 10 cases in Balochistan and 2 in Karachi were found in 2014. Owing to absence of vaccine and facilities, it is uncontrolled. Rising awareness is the only way to control the disease. I request to government to take necessary action in this regard.
